Whether your business or home is traditional, contemporary or your own eclectic design, wood will add significant value to the environment thanks to its timeless beauty and warmth.

Recent Project: Las Alcobas Resort Outdoor Tables

The luxurious Las Alcobas resort in St. Helena, California selected Eugene to make a number of new tables, and refinish others, to enhance the outdoor dining areas of the property. The staff and customers have reported their very positive impression with the results.

The tables were treated with an outdoor stain covered with the world’s finest spar varnish, used on wooden sailboats in Europe and the U.S., to protect them form the sun’s damaging UV rays as well as water and other stains.



From a Live Edge Coffee Table to a Dining Space Masterpiece

Award winning interior designers in California and throughout the U.S are increasingly using live edge hardwood tables in their finest projects, such as the examples in the photos below. Eugene Justus established The Old Silverado Trail company to make custom made live edge hardwood tables to meet that need. These hand-crafted tables are made in Napa Valley from California claro walnut and other beautiful hardwoods. They are designed for those who appreciate custom made quality. His goal is to provide you and your clients with beautiful tables and other furnishings that enrich their business or living environments. Imagine inviting your friends and having drinks around your live edge coffee table or having tasting room customers surround a beautiful live edge table.

The key to his business success, during his 30-year career as an international banker, was establishing excellent long term personal relationships by focusing on building mutually beneficial strategic alliances. During that time, he traveled the world, to 15 foreign countries and 49 U.S. states. As a senior officer of a leading bank he was very effective in working with a wide variety of influential people, including corporate executives with multinational firms, heads of state, other political leaders, and wealthy individuals to meet their financial requirements.

It is that experience that Eugene brings to you and your clients today. His goal to be a business partner to help you be as successful as possible to develop and complete outstanding interior design projects.

The most important aspect for Eugene is to meet with leading interior designers and their clients to fully understand their vision and furnishing requirements— because people do business with people they like. That is why he limits his market to the Texas Hill Country and the greater Austin area.

Eugene has been a woodworker for over 40 years and now focuses on creating custom made furnishings of lasting beauty in his studio in Napa. Whether it’s a live edge coffee table for your home, or a hardwood table at your company, his goal is to have the client smile and say, when first seeing the finished table, “that is a work of art”.
